11:01 am
we are 30 minutes away from the end of monday's session. little changed on the equities front. , third day,rlier best run since early october. sterling down one quarter of 1%. is your function. realizederling's swings against the dollar the last 12 months have outpaced all developed market peers. it is the eighth most volatile against major emerging and advanced economies. this is ranking alongside exchange rates from eastern europe and latin america. the only other developed currency in the top 10 is the new zealand dollar, rocked by concern of an economic slowdown after the labor party formed a
11:02 am
government back in october. this is turkey's economy. faster than expected growth in the third quarter driven by an increase in household spending, gdp expanding 11%, beating estimates, and turkey increasing spending on everything from wages to investments to spur the economy after a failed military coup hurt the economy last year. that is turkey. this is the ramp, sticking with the emerging markets theme. the currency is in for a bumpy ride against the dollar. this week the ruling anc votes on a new leader to replace jacob zuma. now, the most among the baskets of emerging markets currencies tracked by bloomberg. a truly global market. how is it looking over their,

julie? abigail: actually, it is abigail. small gains for the dow and the nasdaq. the dow is switching between small gains and losses. not a lot of confidence on the part of investors. republicans have a lot of work to get done today on tax reforms. unfortunately, that tragedy in times square not affecting stocks. investors think that is unlikely to affect the corporate profit outlook. we now have the s&p 500 on pace for its fourth week in a row. an all-timeseen high in about a week. the s&p 500, let's take a look at some of the best performers. centurylink is up 7.5%. insiders have bought more than 2.5 million shares. centurylink was selected as the network provider for pennsylvania. wynn resorts trading higher
11:04 am
about 3%. make changing its outlook from 7% to 13%. tradinge 4.6% as natural gas rallies. natural gas on the day is up about 2%. we have a forecast for a very cold weather in the northeast, certainly helping natural gas. take a look at gold. gold down ever so slightly on the debut of the coin trading -- bitcoin trading on the futures market. these are considered to be alternatives to fiat currencies. gold today not doing too much as it going -- bitcoin makes that debut. let's take a look at the chart in the bloomberg, it is a longer-term chart of gold in
11:05 am
relation to its 200 day moving average. we see that gold is caught in this range. saws below that 200 day moving average, telling us sellers are in control. push goldy just backed down to about $1200 or ounce, maybe even lower. vonnie: abigail doolittle, thank you for that update. brent crude has risen to the highest since 2015 per barrel, $64.44.ding at a major premium there because the pipeline has closed where a crack was forming. this is disrupting crude going from fields in the north sea to terminal near edinburgh.
11:06 am
it is reduced about 150,000 barrels per day. that is sending brent crude up to the highest since 2015. not seeing a halo effect for wti. mark: thank you very much. the fragile brexit truce as already been tested. david davis calling the compromise over the irish border something that is not legally enforceable. the eu referring to the deal as a gentleman's agreement. theresa may says as about the u.k. taxpayer will soon see the benefits of leaving the eu. turning us now is our market columnist for bloomberg gadfly. are there doubts out there after the reactions of the news on friday? what does it tell us, the
11:07 am
movement down in yields and sterling falling? not read too much into the move down in gilt. cpi coming out tomorrow will probably show that we will be below 2.9. no letter needs to be written to mr. carney. at the end of the year, we have one small option link on wednesday. this is a good sign the deal is holding up. the gentleman's agreement shows to my mind that despite histrionics over the weekend, this is holding. that is quite a vote of confidence in u.k. markets. mark: he said nothing is off the table. that tends to be the labour party viewpoint on brexit.
11:08 am
you wrote a piece last week, fear of corbyn is the biggest reason to bet on britain. what was the underlying thesis? donald can say what he wants to, but i don't think there is much chance of him getting into power, and that is what the market is saying. if may and bring this together, it is quite clear in my mind the eu has made it clear they want to deal with her and have talked to keep things going. that is good news. such harsh brexit doesn't look so obvious. and what point do we really start asking the question how long theresa may can last? >> i think this is her actually getting a windfall. she has played a very well it looks like. the cap seems united. there has been a lot of media
11:09 am
hysteria, which labor is playing off the back of. you cannot blame them for that. neither northern ireland or southern ireland want to deal with the concepts of hard brexit and the labor party. u.k. assets are doing better. it looks like we are at least passed stage one. vonnie: what are the her favorables within the party and at large? >> her favorables? herie: as in polling around leadership and sentiment. >> i don't think that matters at the moment. no one is going to push the button and get rid of her. everyone seems to be coming behind her deal. it is quite clear the eu is wanting to deal with her, and they are giving her a break in that sense. both central parties of ireland, north and south, have played their lot as far as they can,
11:10 am
and this may not be everyone's popular choice, but she is the least worst option. commerzbank since february -- i need to check those. >> he is probably right. mark: do nothing. >> no chance. i don't think they will raise rates for another year or even longer. at the moment, i think the question is inflation has peaked. i think they will print around 2.9. that means we are finally seeing -- mark: unless sterling declines precipitously again. >> or brexit does fall apart in that sense. for the moment, i think we are well set for cpi from the bank of england. mark: thank you. nice work. columnist for bloomberg gadfly.

♪ new: live from bloomberg's european headquarters in london, i am mark barton with the european close. 15 minutes away. vonnie: in new york, i am by when. artificiallyes trading -- are officially trading. cboe is the first major company to offer contracts for the cryptocurrency.
11:16 am
bitcoin beatn the is back. julie: we are here with the ceo of cboe, ed tilly from chicago. congratulations on the launch. volume is just over 3000 contracts so far. we have seen some swings in the price. how is it going from your perspective? how does it compare with what you expected? ed: it is meeting expectations in the early days. our dedicated liquidity providers are getting comfortable turning in a new commodity in this case. it is business as usual from a launch perspective. 3000 contracts, that is a lot of our participants getting ready and scaling up. i expect to see a little change in that, those transactions over time. julie: i am curious when you
11:17 am
talk about your participants who those are. hearingous what you're from larger institutions, whether they are nibbling, whether they are giving indications they might be moving into the market. ed: at launch we had about 12 known to spence, registered traders. we are up to about 22. they represent various end users . you can see from 12 for the launch to 22 during the u.s. trading day, that is a big change. i think we will see that change over the weeks to come. that --some suggesting any plans to expand that? ed: not really. we are pleased with the partnership with gemini. them knowing their users and
11:18 am
information sharing from a regulator perspective is very important. ours is a very trader friendly contract in that we are in different whether you are holding bitcoin futures or physical bitcoin. theike that construction of contractor. julie: is there any plan in the future to offer an actual contract? ed: at this point we are pleased with the rollout. we will stick with the futures contract. i think you will see buzz around security etf's as a result. i think it will take some time, but i think that will be the next frontier in the evolution of bringing bitcoin to a broader base of users. vonnie: what other contracts might come out of this, other types of trading derivatives? ed: i think we will see
11:19 am
derivatives. we need to get through a number of different settlements, whether it is our process with gemini or our competitors with an index. . think it will be months ahead it will be a longer process getting the sec ready for etf's and etm's. julie: what about a mini contract? when you're talking about 16,000 or 18,000, that is a big piece to bite for retailers. ed: it is. there might be room for many contracts in the weeks and contracts in the weeks and months ahead. vonnie: i am interested in whales, figure out who is actually in the market and corner it somehow. how are you stating that off? ed: very difficult to do. our information sharing with
11:20 am
gemini allows us to have transparency into their process, and we are used to regulating futures markets. we have the cooperation of all of our users. we know our users and will have the accessibility to look back and reconstruct trades. vonnie: won't it be too late by then if a whale does appear? ed: it will be difficult. you have to instruct purchases across multiple exchanges. we have colored that option with an index. we will be looking at not only the settlement price from gemini, but that has to fit within an index of other bitcoins. that would be pretty much a global effort at this point. julie: this raises the question of clearing risk. as you know, the futures industry association raised some concerns about clearing risks and what they perceived as a rush to market. what made you say the risks are
11:21 am
worth it, we are going to go ahead, and we are going to be the first one to go ahead? what convinced you it was worth some of these risks? ed: i do think from ccp's perspective, the appropriateness of the margin level was taken into account. julie: 44%. ed: i like that. the contract and limitations in and around 1000 contracts, consideration on the settlement process, from the fia's perspective, i think it is a little unfair in that we have been vocal and out in the open that this has been about six months of work bringing this to market, not the overnight self certification that was written in the letter. this is months and months of work about six months. vonnie: you said yourself a few
11:22 am
minutes ago that you are a reformed trader yourself. ed: recovering. whyie: i'm going to ask you there is such a huge premium, trading at 18,200 for a futures contract that is not even that far in the future. ed: we are looking at the premium around trying to pick a settlement price in the future, and that highly volatile underline. i think that might come in. i think arbitrage will close that gap, but it will be days and weeks. there is much to learn. i think it is a great deal from a liquidity price perspective to see what is to come in the coming days. with it beingg early days, we talked about the margin requirement at 44%, which is higher than most of the other products. any indication that would come
11:23 am
down if you see certain conditions met? ed: too early to predict. i think we will see underlying liquidity build. that will be some of the first steps in order to lower that margin. it is too early days. i trust the process. i believe that interaction will take some time. vonnie: do you own any? are you allowed to? ed: i am allowed to, but i don't own any at the moment. julie: he doesn't own any of the moment. does that mean he did? ed: no, no. vonnie: thank you to our guest ed tilly and julie hyman. mark: you can see clearly we have yields down in the u k and germany. this is bloomberg. ♪

>> welcome to the european headquarters in the city of london. this is the european close. i'm mark barton. with vonny quinn in new york. the stocks were up earlier for
11:30 am
a third consecutive day, best run since early november and comes after the biggest weekly gains since mid september. the index also gained for the second week in three big weeks and the central banks, b.o.e., lots of data on both sides of the lot lan particular. what's moving sterling? well, brexit, of course. after friday's big breakthrough, tipping today, fell 2/3 above today and this is a five-day chart going back to last monday, biggest fall since october. first weekly decline in five. r.b.c. capital markets has the most bearish forecast among our survey of 60 or so analysts and expects sterling to tumble 11%, 119 by march. talks with the e.u. on trade may fail to progress as quickly as the market hopes so says r.b.c. economic data out of the u.k. may print on the weaker side which will force the market to price out the prospect of further rate increases by the bank of england, thus stopping the pound.
11:31 am
the median first quarter forecasts from the analysts we've surveyed is sterling to end the first quarter. at 132. let's get to gold because money managers tripling their short positions in gold last week. the fastest pace since record keeping began in 2006. the jump in bearish aspects come as prospects of higher rates, protests on tax legislation deepen and a slump in bullied prices and positions had fallen to a five-year low the previous week on north korea, u.s. tensions un certainty under the tax bill and aiding demand as a haven. that's gold. this is something different. a demand for hard drives and electrochemical appliances has sellenium soaring to $190 an ounce according to johnson mathy, quadrupled this year outperforming all major
11:32 am
commodity asened may have more room to run. the rally has legs says jonathan butler, a specialist at mitsubishi, there's good industrial piing out there. and it's soared 375% in the last 12 months. how is it looking over there? vonnie: i don't know what that metal looks like. but the consolidation today, the major central banks are meeting, more than a dozen around the world including russia, mexico, among the more interesting ones. only the fed is expected to be hiking and you can see the dollar is not doing much before that after a couple stronger weeks, just consolidating a little, and you can see that through the yen at 113.37. the 10-year yield as well and a auction at 1130 and another one later on at 237, not much movement there either and the six is nice and quiet. the contact for bitcoin is 18% on the spot price, just below
11:33 am
18,000 which it did breach, by the way. let's move to g.m.m. because you can see equities around the world doing pretty well in some of the top markets, including russia where we're expecting jermaine o'neal bank move, china as well doing well and the euro is having a better day it looks like. maybe things are settling at least for the moment in europe. don't forget, u.s. tax later this week. that might move markets as well. and i did want to point out once more that brent is up 1.6% on the closure of that oil pipeline that impacts things. the company decided to close it down with the crack getting bigger. mark: the jourt look for 2018 as we head into a busy week, announcements from the fed, the e.c.b. and bank of england. joining us is john rate, head of u.k. rate strategy. this is your chance to disagree with the bloomberg story, u.k. guilds rally as cracks appear.
11:34 am
you can agree or disagree? john: the signs are all is not harmonious as perhaps the cole pigs tigses would make it appear -- perhaps the politicians would make it appear we reached an agreement. but in the space of 72 hours there are conflicting stories about what's been agreed and how set in stone it is and what sort of wiggle room there may be and both sides are not in accord on that and safe haven demands said guilt lower as as result. mark: how does it play in the bank of england, marcus said no rate hike next year. you agree? john: we do. mark: and it's predicated on a soft brexit, the b.o.e. forecast. john: they talk of early agreement and smooth
11:35 am
transition. yes, it is progress. we wouldn't want to pretend that it isn't. if you look at the consensus for growth forecast, the bank of england, the currency, most people's views of predicated on how brexit goes next year for obvious reasons and we're on the mess mystic side of consensus which gives us weak growth forecast and bearish sterling forecast and the bank of england won't hike next year, for example and comes from a view any deal in the clarity that we need for private sector demand to remain to pick up again in the u.k. that clarity will come very late in the process. last friday is a step in the right direction but these immediate noises that all is not well already just sort of playing into our view this will be an incredibly complex agreement to come to. mark: the b.o.e. tick and the e.c.b., the big move came in october but some are looking to what happens beyond september. we did a survey of economists and the majority said there
11:36 am
will be a little tapering period. from september to december. john: possibly. mark: do they guide thus week or no need? john: you look at how the markets have behaved and there's not a temper tantrum action and signaled things well in advance. they have new forecasts to publish which includes forecasts for 2020 and growth revisions for breath forecasts next year and 2019 as well. they'll be relatively up beat in that context but at this point we want to stress at them being very careful and inflation is not doing what i think they'd like it to do, certainly at the core level and will tread carefully. will they do more after september of next year? clearly there's a possibility they'll have to. vonnie: is there movement for the euro, john, and does it containing the equation? john: we're constructive on the euro and over the course of next year we see it strengthling quite materially against other g-7 currencies, the dollar certainly against sterling as well and is the
11:37 am
premise on the e.c.b. managing to extricate itself from this sort of maximum extensive accommodation without stumbling and we're positive on growth, we think bond yields rise particularly a bit further down the yield curve which is good for banks and it's a pretty benign environment if that all plays out for the euronext year. we also think there is remaining political risk get resolved in a reasonably benign way and the potential for political upset primarily in italy won't materialize and as that's resolved some of the fiscal worries that undermine the euro will go away. we're sort of constructive on the euro for next year. vonnie: we had the greek finance minister in a little while ago marketing in greece and saying absolutely greece will be out of the bailout program by next august and the troicka program. is there any danger something like greece might get derailed or mario draghi won't be able to fully exit as he's hoping next year because of thorns in
11:38 am
his side? john: it's always a possibility and with all of these central banks it's only when they start to unwind, the extent of the accommodation that's been in place for those emergency reasons for so long that they potentially see weaknesses in the structure as they do so. now, as i said, we're reasonably upbeat and think the e.c.b. can follow its course of action and that growth will continue unchecked and actually in that environment the peripheral countries do pretty well next year and think peripheral spreads will continue to tighten and in fact greek debt is one in particular we're positive on at the moment. mark: room to grow, gradual policy, normalization and broadening european growth and china rebalancing and having our cake and eating it. ex-main that one first but what are the implementations, your preferred implementations around those themes? john: we're essentially saying with that last theme is we've got our views and there is going to be another year of growth, overall very similar to this year and the fed is going
11:39 am
to continue on track and tighten at least another couple times next year p. japan is going to do particularly well so we have these different views across the global economies and come up with sort of various trade recommendations across different asset classes to capture that. we've also come up with trades that are aimed at performing even if that environment doesn't materialize. so for example curve flatness in the u.s. is a good example, if the fed does state course there's been a material rise in short yields in the u.s. of course but if they raise rates another two, three, who knows maybe four times next year and the recovery stays on track then short yields should rise, we think the flattening we've been seeing this year continues in that environment, if things go wrong and the recovery doesn't continue, either globally or in the u.s., then 10-year yields are likely to fall and we get a bullish flattening of the yield curve and trades that we hope might work. mark: in japan, given the
11:40 am
debate, do they target above more than zero, do they shift that target? does that happen pretty soon into 2018? john: not necessarily soon but we think at some point the extent of the control, the bank of japan puts us over that 10-year will be loosened a little bit. we're pretty upbeat for japan but in terms of real growth and inflation next year, we're above consensus on both of those and if things materialize in that direction, then there may come a point the bank of japan is ready to be a little bit less. mark: what would they move it to? john: move it up by 10 or 15 basis points to allow things to start slowly normalizing and a bit like the e.c.b. and fed for that matter, they'll go very slowly if they do try and get away from this extreme pollackization. the u.s. has been raising rates, first raised rates two full years ago now and it's obviously taken a while to get to the point where people feel it's on a more normal rate hike and projectry but they have to tread incredibly carefullyly in the process.
11:41 am
vonnie: what's the one thing that keeps you up at night if anything and maybe you're lucky enough not to be kept up? john: apart from young children, i mean, at the moment to be honest partly because it's my particular focus bahama it's a genuine risk to the wider recovery as well, certainly in the rest of europe, it's brexit and all things brexit. and which we were discussing before, we do think there was real progress made last week. but there's so much further to go and in a relatively short space of time. there is a possibility that it passes off in a reasonably positive way threw but there's so many risks around that to us and we see them show signs of materializing at fairly intervals and it could get worse and presents risks to the u.k. economy and the political backdrop but as i say, certainly for the e.u. and the you're so zone more widely as well. vonnie: wonderful stuff. please come back and visit us
11:42 am
ubs. john wraith, at let's check in on the first word news with taylor riggs. taylor: some terrifying moments in new york today. police say a man wearing an explosive device set off inside the times square subway station and is under arrest and being treated for burns. three other people were also hurt. the suspect is identified as a 27-year-old. bill de blasio called it an attempted terrorist attack, the subway station where the bomb went off is the busiest in the city. the u.s. treasury secretary steve massachusetts nuchen released the tax plan and said it would generate $1.8 trillion in additional revenue over 10 years and would be enough to pay for the tax cuts. congress' official scorekeeper said the cuts would add almost $1 trillion to the deficit. the largest of those wildfires in southern california is now moving north. hundreds have fled their homes in santa barbara county.
11:43 am
so far the fire has burned more than 270 square miles and forced the evacuation of 30,000 people and is only 15% contained. and it will be another tough year for london's property market according to real estate website right move, home values in london are likely to fall another 2%. bright move says economic and political uncertainty tend to weigh more heavily on the city. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2,700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. i'm taylor, i? i'm taylor riggs. vonnie? vonnie: france in focus. we speak to the finance minister about the time line for president macron's biggest plans for europe. this is bloomberg.
11:44 am
11:45 am
11:46 am
mark: in the european headquarters, i'm mark barton. vonnie: and i'm vonny -- vonnie quinn. . the wynn trading high at 2.8%. deutsche bank raised the utlook for growth for mccow -- mccau, sending shares higher. back to taylor rigs. taylor: the gaming is up and looks good for the resorts. the deutsche bank coming out and saying they are raising the outlook for gaming revenue in mccau to 17%, above previous estimates for growth for 13%. a lot of it is being driven primarily from the v.i.p. segment, the v.i.p. revenue growth will now rise 21%. v.i.p. to me sounds like higher margins if you think about this
11:47 am
rationally and the deutsche forecasts s said for wynn are coming in bullish, 16% above consensus and want to look at the ebitda, and we're going 20% and would be the highest since 2014. seen though you had a decline in revenue, it's good news now you're starting to see revenue come back and these ebitda margins bounce back with it. rk: how important is macau revenues to say, las vegas? taylor: it has been declining in importance over the years. if you look, it's gone to half as we look at it as half of total revenue. a few years ago in fiscal 2013 it made up 70% or so and meanwhile vegas has been about
11:48 am
steady, coming in 28% to 36% and revenue growth has been tepid there. macau revenues have been declining as the company looks to perhaps diversify or look for other areas of revenue growth so perhaps maybe this could have been a little better but i'm sure they're happy about the revised forecasts regardless. vonnie: taylor riggs with our stock of the hour. thank for you that. rk: vonnie, emanuel macron's attempts to hold the euro zone are a part of a strategy according to the finance minister and joined francine lacqua in paris and she asked him about the time line for president macron's ambitious plans for europe. >> it will take time but the key point is the goal, what do we want for the euro zone? do we want the euro zone to
11:49 am
remain only a monetary union or do we want the euro zone to become a economy continent as strong, as powerful as china or the united states? that's exactly the goal of emmanuel macron and we're of the view we have to go step by step. for the first step, i think we should try to reach the banking union, to reach also the capital markets union and to try to improve the convergence as far as corporate taxes is concerned and the view that it would be possible between france and germany to have a convergence as far as taxes is concerned by 2018, by the end of 2018. the second step should be the improvement of the european monetary fund, that we could try to have a european monetary fund which would help us to
11:50 am
resist, the economic crisis and the last step would be the creation of a european budget with a finance minister and think it should be the last step. this is the three-step approach i have presented and that president macron wants to explain to his partners before the end of 2017. mark: bruno lemaire. taylor: time for a look at the biggest stories in the news right now. uber has gotten a temporary repreeve in london. a judge said an appeal court hearing whether the company should be banned will be held in april or june. uber can keep operating in the meantime. in september the regulators revoked their license because of safety and regulatory concerns. the struggling global retailer steinhoff is in talk with banks
11:51 am
on a stand still agreement on a $1.8 billion margin loan. according to people knowledgeable of the matter, the chairman wants banks to agree to not sell stocks that backs the financing until next year. steinhoff fell 80% last week after saying it was unable to publish results. one time king of cocoa is closing his flagship hedge fund. anthony ward is shutting down the cc plus fund which specializes in trading coffee and cocoa. ward found it difficult to make money against al gore rhythmic traders and will start again next year. mark: the battle of the charts, come the top assets of 2017 take on the feds, we'll find out next, this is bloomberg.

11:55 am
